MANILA -- One of her daughters, Julia Barretto, defended herself from cheating allegations last week.

Marjorie Barretto, however, is staying positive amid the controversy.

The former actress took to Instagram on Monday to thank God for her growing family.

Posting photos from the baby shower of her eldest daughter Dani, Barretto said: "These photos pretty much sum up my whole life. My five children, my son-in-law Xavi, and my granddaughter who we are so excited to meet. Thank you, Lord, for giving us each other."

She went on to say that she finds joy in the fact that they "can always draw strength from one another."

"I can't imagine any other life than this. We choose to feel blessed," she added.

Barretto shared the post days after she and her sister, Gretchen, took swipes at each other through their Instagram bios.

She identified herself as a "ghost writer" after Gretchen claimed that Julia hired a ghost writer when the latter issued a statement on her supposed involvement in the breakup of Bea Alonzo and Gerald Anderson.

Gretchen, meanwhile, changed her Instagram bio to "ghost buster."
